Panasonic Eco Solutions Canada has been awarded a contract to design and build photovoltaic systems totaling 500 kW for two municipal structures in Clinton, Ontario.
Panasonic says the installations for the Central Huron REACH Center and Central Huron Community Complex will use more than 2,000 of its solar panels and will have an expected total output of more than 800 MWh annually. Both solar PV systems are scheduled to be constructed by the fall.
The company says both PV systems will be designed in accordance with the respective feed-in-tariff (FIT) contracts associated with the two locations and the Ontario FIT program.
In May, the Ontario Power Authority announced it would make changes to the FIT program to address World Trade Organization objections to its current structure that will give priorities to projects for municipalities.
